Video Games and Motion Capture

When you think of motion graphics and animation, I bet your first thought isn’t video games.  But they use a technique that is seen in many other areas of media, even film. A technique seen in a movie such as Avatar, is motion capture. Motion capture, to put it at it’s most basic form, is aligning the movement of physical people to a character. This means a person’s movements can be recorded and rendered into a virtual character’s.
   It’s an extremely fascinating technique that has proven to produce a new form of content creation. For video game makers, animators, and filmmakers alike.
